In this paper seasonal epidemiological processes are considered and a strategy of periodic vaccination is proposed. The invariant formulations associated with an N-periodic system and the reproduction numbers associated with them are considered. A collection of measures to study the stability of the system is introduced. Moreover, the collection of s-basic reproduction number at time j help us to establish conditions on the periodic vaccination rates in the vaccination program. Finally, an SIR model is showed and a comparison between the results obtained using constant or periodic vaccination program is analyzed.
